August/September 2014 - Volume XXXX Number 7  

“What is the very first gift of the Holy Spirit?
It is the gift of himself, the one who is love
and who makes us fall in love with Jesus.
And this love changes our lives.
That is why we speak of ‘being born again in the Spirit.’”

Pope Francis, June 1, 2014

Seeking Fresh Fire
by Jean Beers
A testimony shared at the WWCCR Pentecost Celebration, June 8, 2014.

      One of the things the Lord brought to mind today was that the Apostles and the community in Jerusalem received the power, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, more than once.  In preparing my testimony I remember the particular time when I prayed for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and that’s just indelible in my mind. However, that wasn’t the first time.  The first time was probably my First Communion, when I fully believed that I was receiving Jesus in the Body of Christ. Then, as a teenager at my Sacrament of Confirmation, I knew I had received the Holy Spirit at that time.  And there were other times when the Holy Spirit came upon me, and I know that you, too, may have these experiences, you can look back and see other times that the Holy Spirit has come upon you.   Read More...

From Sue's Desk

My dear friends,

      I missed not writing to you last month. This is another two-month issue. We are using this time to put together a new website, so it will be well worth the sacrifice. J  We will return to monthly Gleanings in October.

      I would like to highlight the words Pope Francis spoke to the Italian Renewal in the Spirit at their National Convocation in Rome.  52,000 people gathered from 55 countries. The message included seven expectations that Pope Francis has for the Renewal. I have room here to share three with you. He began, “The first thing is conversion to the love of Jesus which changes our lives and makes each Christian a witness to God’s love. The Church expects this witness of Christian life from us, and the Holy Spirit helps us to live the Gospel fully and consistently for our own growth in holiness.”   Read More...
